There was demand to extend the list past 30, so we did. Using a Google form, we asked for your top 10 prospects not already on the community list. We got 27 responses, which I think is pretty good since it required a lot more effort than the usual voting.

To tally the votes, I awarded 10 points for every 31st-place vote, nine for 32nd-place, and so on, like college sports polls. In total, 43 more prospects received at least one vote. Of those 43, 20 had three or more votes, so I extended the list to 50. Here are the results:
